I recently received an instructables patch and wanted to sew it on my jacket. I figured that there are probably other people out there that would like to sew a patch onto an article of clothing but don't know how, so I decided to make a simple instructable on how to do just that! If you have any suggestions or questions, please leave a comment!

Step 1: What You Need

For this project, you will need the following:

Thread. I chose white because it blends with the white on the patch.

Sewing Needle

A patch that you want to sew onto your shirt or jacket

A shirt or jacket that you want to sew your patch onto

That's it!
<p>Great instructable! You can find great iron-on/sew-on patches at Tattoo.it. Shop! www.tattooit.etsy.com</p>
<p>Suggest you add a thimble to the &quot;what You Need&quot; list- </p><p>The patches are often thick and backed with a hard substance and a thimble makes it much easier to push the needle through this stuff. I sewed on a lot of patches when I was in the Navy. </p>

How much thread do you use? I am trying to sew the patch onto my backpack.
I just cut a very long piece and trimmed it when I was done.

Just a quickie... where did you get the i'bles patch from?
I got it from something randofo sent me, but you can get them from instructables prize packs which you can win in contests. If you are really wanting one, I am sure you could cajole one of the staff in to selling it to you. Thanks for the comment!
Instead of trying to TIE a knot, my wife always puts the neeedle through horizontally at the back and the leaves a loop of thread...puts the needle through and pulls it tight...a great knot and easily done.
I think I understand! Maybe I will make a diagram. It sounds much easier then tying a knot. Thanks for the comment!
can i ask wehre you got the patch from
Yes, I received it from a kit that randofo sent me. Although, they come with an instructable prize pack that you can win in contests. Thanks for the comment!
I just have one little tip that might save someone some frustration, tie your knot before you cut the thread :) That way you know you have enough left to hold on to to make the knot.
Thanks! I will definitely add that!
Good instructions. :D This is the way I do it as well - easy to do on a sewing machine too.
Yep! It's super easy! Thanks for the kind words!
So you sew along the inside of the border? Sounds simple enough. Great Instructable!
Yep! Thanks for the comment!
